I tell myself it was the best compromise, but it's hard to stop thinking about my initial 540i M-Sport test drive!

I genuinely wish there had been an option for Adaptive M-Sport.

Not much to add that hasn't been said, but I will echo that it's really important to be clear on your everyday priorities.

My last car was a black on black 328 and it was an oven.

Current is a bluestone/mocha Nappa G30 and there is a noticeable difference, especially in the surface temp of the seats. The G30 never...

I agree with this whole post -- very happy with the Nappa and every option I chose (which was almost all of them...).

I haven't used PPF or Ceramic Pro before. Is it typically applied to the entire exterior, or only to areas that would typically be covered with paint protection films? What has the cost for your...

Did you go with the MSport package? If so, it replaces some of the blue iPerformance elements.

Thanks! And thanks, jjrandoring for making up for my laziness and linking the review.

Because of the way Texas handles taxes on leasing, and due to the absence of any great leasing incentives from BMWFS, I ended up buying my 530e. My plan is to keep it 4 years if I can hold out that...

I'm averaging about 12-14 miles real-world electric only range, and about 41 MPG overall.

That is a tough one.

I came to my 530e from a 328i, but both had just about every option box checked.

If you're looking for comfort and a quiet ride, you'll want the 530e hands down, and it's...

One of my favorite features.

There's an option in the app to set a one-time or recurring "preconditioning" event which will activate the climate control. This works whether you're plugged in or...

The primary difference is that it is branded BMW, has a slick exterior design, and costs about twice as much.

I went with a Clipper Creek 60, which felt more future proof (we might replace my...

I completely agree. I was worried, coming from a 3 series, but in Sport mode I enjoy the 530e driving dynamics. I think that the battery pack's position results in a lower center of gravity, which...

I've only gassed up twice since purchasing, and I think that last time it showed around 360 miles of range on a full tank/full charge.

You have three hybrid modes to choose from. If you choose...

Using a Level 2 charger, the Connected app always says 18 miles, but the car often says 13 the minute I start it. Practical electric range has been between 12-14 miles for me.

I think my range showed around 350 miles after my last fill-up. I'll pay closer attention next time, but it looks like it will be about 4 weeks between gas station visits.
